With the craze of the holidays you may be able to use this for some fun, creative ideas to help you find the perfect gift for the people you love!
Gifts $20 and up
Stainless Steel Water Bottle: These bottles are all the rage lately. They are environmentally conscious and help save money for those who often buy bottled water.
Pedometer: I have a pedometer and I love using it to track my movement in a given day. I find it motivating and it provides an opportunity for self-challenge. There is a movement that believes we should all be doing 10,000 steps a day. What a great idea! You can get this at any sporting goods store, I picked up mine at Sports Authority.
Yoga Straps: Not just for yoga! Yoga mats are a great tool to facilitate stretching and gentle flexibility, right at home!
Create a Rockin' Playlist: Create a playlist of some of his/her favorite tunes. Download each song separately which is usually .99 cents each on itunes. Put them in an order you like, and burn a dvd.
Playlist Creation Tip: Try starting the playlist with two tunes that are a little slower for a warm up. Then gradually increase with the more upbeat tunes, add one or two slower songs at the end for cool down… and, you're all set!
Yoga Matt: A great way to inspire at home stretching or grab and go to a class is a nice “cooshy” yoga matt. You could always add in the carry case. It has more value then you might think.
Active Wear: Believe it or not the way someone feels about the way they look can often be a deterrent that keeps people from working out. A new workout outfit can be a great motivator.
Gifts $50.00 and up

To give is to simultaneously receive and when we give the perfect gift, we share a smile and moment with someone special. To me, that is the ultimate in wellness!
